Light-Duty Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Sales Requirement

All sales of new light-duty passenger vehicles in California must be ZEVs by 2035. ZEVs include battery-electric and fuel cell electric vehicles. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) will develop regulations related to in-state sales of new light-duty cars and trucks. CARB developed a ZEV Market Development Strategy to support these regulations and assess statewide ZEV infrastructure. The Strategy will be updated triennially.
